How Does Laser Skin Rejuvenation Work?

Your skin can age prematurely for a number of reasons. Genetics, weight loss, sun damage, smoking, the wrong kind of skincare, and other stressors can all do a number on your complexion. If you feel that the years have taken their toll on your skin, don’t worry. At New York Skin & Vein Center, our laser nurses use the most advanced treatments on the market to take years off of your appearance.

Excel® V: The Gold Standard in Laser Systems

At NYSVC, we pride ourselves on being able to offer the best lasers possible to you. For skin rejuvenation, we’ve chosen the world’s best: the Excel® V. Using two proven and safe wavelengths, the Excel® V is able to eliminate most if not all vascular and pigment problems on your skin.

Excel® V has been proven to treat 20 skin conditions, including the following:

  • Rosacea
  • Spider Veins
  • Age/Brown Spots
  • Acne Scars
  • Freckles
  • Face/Leg Veins
  • Warts
  • Sun Damage Pigmentation
  • Port Wine Stain
  • Venous Lake

This breakthrough laser is considered to be the best in the world at improving your complexion, and for good reason–It’s helped hundreds of thousands of clients just like you to look and feel their best. In addition to treating skin issues on the surface, it also stimulates collagen production deeper in the skin to give you long-lasting improvement after your procedure.

How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take and What Does It Feel Like?

Treatment time depends largely on the area you’re looking to improve. When we predict treatment length, we look at the size of the area, the desired outcome, and the severity of the issue. While treatments on smaller areas can take 15 minutes, treating the whole face will take upwards of an hour. The treatment feels like a rubber band snack with no discomfort afterward. We offer you a numbing cream and cold air blown onto the face to make it perfectly comfortable. The tip of the laser that touches the skin is also chilled to keep you pain-free.

What Results Will I See?

Patients that undergo Exce® V treatments report feeling more confident in their appearance and have to wear much less (if any) makeup. Typical outcomes include better clearer skin, fading of brown spots, the disappearance of broken capillaries, improved skin texture, and tone. Desired results are typically reached within 1month. Depending on the desired outcome, patients may need anywhere from 1-5 treatments. You will most likely return annually for a single treatment to maintain the improvement in your complexion.

Everyone’s skin is different, and so is every treatment. At NYSVC, we want you to look and feel your best. In addition to providing the best technology possible, we want to make sure that you feel confident in your appearance. To ensure the best results possible, discuss your goals with your specialist. 

Is There Any Downtime?

Downtime for the Excel® V is minimal, making it an ideal “weekend treatment.” Depending on your particular treatment, you may experience 1-2 days of redness, bruising, and slight swelling. Aftercare includes avoiding direct sunlight and wearing sunscreen after your procedure. Most patients are able to return to work the next day.

For more detailed aftercare instructions and to get an idea of what you may experience after your procedure, talk to your laser nurse at your consult.
